Mike Nishizaki, Assistant Professor of Biology, has been awarded a National Science Foundation grant for his project “Collaborative Research: RUI: Microscale interactions of foundation species with their fluid environment: biological feedbacks alter ecological interactions of mussels” (NSF OCE #2050129). Working with Emily Carrington at U. of Washington and Matthew Reidenbach at U. of Virginia, Prof. Nishizaki and his students will investigate mussel behavior and physiology using a combination of lab, field, and computational fluid dynamic model experiments.
